Research Program Development

Harvard Law School's Office of Research Program Development initiates and coordinates relationships with individuals, foundations, and corporations to support the institution's academic initiatives, 20+ research programs, faculty research projects, and other institutional priorities. The office provides leadership for the Harvard Law School's faculty, staff, and administrators in identifying, soliciting, and cultivating major grants and gifts for academic endeavors.

The breadth of the Harvard Law School's research ranges from corporate law to internet policy and from human rights to bankruptcy law. Major contributions from devoted alumni and external donors, in addition to foundation grants and corporate giving, enable Harvard Law School to serve as a global leader in groundbreaking research and inspired teaching. We encourage you to learn more about the school and to become involved.
